DRaaS in Healthcare
The research firm IDC has reported that healthcare data will increase to 2,314 exabytes by 2020, up from only 153 exabytes in 2031. If this data was stored on a stack of tablets, it would grow to more than 82,000 miles high, which would reach one third of the way to the moon.
This is a lot of data to protect and manage. Healthcare, which was paper-based not so long ago, is now digital. “Stuff happens” for nearly endless reasons: hardware failures, software bugs, data corruption, fires, power outages, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, storms … so it’s not hard to see the need for a good, solid Disaster Recovery plan.
